    The Getty Vocabularies: project to publish as Linked Open Data  (Getty Research Institute)

    The Getty has a project to publish as LINKED OPEN DATA their vocabuaries.

    In the LODLAM Summit 2013, they have said that, planning for the publication of all four Getty vocabularies as Linked Open Data (LOD) is well underway. It´s anticipated that the data will be publishing under the ODC_BY 1.0. license. They will begin with AAT and then move on to TGN, ULAN from AAT and TGN; and CONA from all three. They also intend to publish LOD versions of their lookup list (e.g., languages, roles, nationalities, place types, and bibliographic sources).

    What is the history of the Getty vocabularies?
    Work on the AAT began in the late 1970s in response to a need expressed by art libraries, art journal indexing services, and catalogers of museum objects and visual resource collections for a controlled vocabulary to encourage consistency in cataloging and more efficient retrieval of information. While controlled headings and terminology were already common in the field of bibliographic cataloging, and thesauri for cataloging in the sciences was by then well established, the use of a thesaurus for indexing was not welcomed by art catalogers prior to the advent of computerized cataloging. The original core AAT terms were derived from scattered local lists and other sources, in consultation with a panel of experts in architecture and art. The AAT was first published, in print form, in 1990.

    Work on the ULAN began in 1984, when the Getty merged and coordinated controlled vocabulary resources for use by the J. Paul Getty Trust's many automated documentation projects. The AAT was already being managed by the Getty at this time, and the Getty attempted to respond to requests from Getty projects for additional controlled vocabularies for artists' names (ULAN) and geographic names (TGN). In 1987 the Getty created a department dedicated to compiling and distributing terminology. Although originally intended only for use by Getty projects, in response to requests from the broader community, the ULAN was first published in 1991, in print form, according to the tenets previously established for the construction and maintenance of the AAT.

    Work on the TGN began in 1987. Its development was informed by an international study completed by the Thesaurus Artis Universalis (TAU), a working group of the Comité International d'Histoire de l'Art (CIHA), and by the consensus reached at a colloquium held in 1991, attended by the spectrum of potential users of geographic vocabulary in cataloging and scholarship of art and architectural history and archaeology. The TGN was first published, on the Web, in 1997.

    Work on CONA began in 2004, when detailed discussions regarding the Getty Vocabulary Program compiling a vocabulary comprising unique numeric identifiers and brief records for art works was undertaken. CONA is scheduled to be available for user contributions in 2011; the online "browser" is scheduled to launch in early 2012.
